We all want all cars to pass minimal safety guidelines in their manufacture.
Public vehicles are designed with wheelchair access.
Some private vehicles have special adaptations.

WAI has perhaps concentrated on the first of these, with some good work on
the second, and very little on the third (related to a concern for
universality).

A car that someone with (mild to severe) learning difficulties could obtain
a licence to drive has yet to be designed, but it is probably doable.
It might need its own traffic lane.
